Natural Designed Joint Mobility All Your Life.
This is the name that I want to use to define my technique, lifestyle, or whatever you want to call it. All my marketing advisers say that this is a stupid idea because
-- it's unpronounceable
-- it doesn't have a meaning
-- no one has ever heard of it
I shall probably start to use it soon anyway. Not having a meaning is an advantage in that the meaning and identity will slowly develop. I believe in it strongly enough to believe that this will happen.
It is pronounced like African word such as Nkomo. The n is pronounced separately and in this case the d is silent. Maybe the best pronunciation in English would-be un--jamayl.
The African pronunciation is no accident. I believe that it is to the most naturally living people in Africa that we should look for the correct or most nearly correct use of the human body. We have traditionally looked east for the correct model of sitting habits but those civilisations had already developed back problems and just found different solutions from ourselves in the West.
Another thing that we need to learn from Africans is the looseness that they manage to maintain in their bodies and limbs by their lifestyle.
The silent d in the word Ndjmayl is also important to me. Evolution has literally designed each part of the human body for its use over the period of a similar lifestyle. For much of the body, and particularly for the spine, this means that the design has been tuned over the last 5 million years since we first became bipedal. If we use it correctly, understanding the design, it will work well for us.
